IN SEARCH OF THE 'DISAPPEARING SELF'
Languages of publication
The review paper surveys the struggles on psychology and social science at large around concepts touching upon the self. The survey claims that behind the conceptual chaos one could trace rivaling theories regarding how to reconstruct the authority of one of the most crucial anchoring points of psychology namely personal reference. A detailed analysis is given of the deconstructionist and different narrative approaches. The survey concludes by the claim that the respectful status of the disappearing self has to be reconstructed in order to account for the key role of autobiographic moments and individualized interpretations.
